Our philosophy

Korunní mineral water cultivates its character over long years, benefiting from the unique properties of the Doupov Mountains’ signature rock formations that have taken millions of years to form. This is why we know very well that it doesn’t belong just to our generation. We always act to preserve its sources for as long as possible. Therefore, our deep boreholes undergo regular care and inspections, and every intervention proceeds with the utmost consideration.

Water is essential to life, and almost no food industry segment is inspected as thoroughly as mineral waters. At Korunní, our sophisticated quality control systems are a matter of course. This is why our sources are certified by the Czech Spa and Spring Inspectorate of the Ministry of Health and why we introduced an integrated management system based on the ISO 9001:2016, FSSC 22000 standards and their certifications.

  • FSSC 22 000 - a Food Safety System Certification based on food safety management compliant with the ČSN EN ISO 22000:2005 standard “Requirements for any organization in the food chain” which compiles elements such as interactive communication, system management, HACCP principles and food safety requirements into “Prerequisite programs on food safety for food manufacturing” laid down in ISO 22002-1:2010. It is an international food safety standard recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative, and its certification is recognized by retail chains as sufficient proof of food safety assurance by the manufacturer.
  • ČSN EN ISO 9001:2016 - The International Organization for Standardization. This standard lays down a simple principle: company management defines its production quality objectives and plans which are gradually implemented using defined processes while the efficiency of these processes is measured and monitored to allow the company to carry out efficient corrective action. The standard focuses on documentation, human resources and infrastructure management principles, introduces customer communication, supplier evaluation and process-performance measuring processes as well as internal audits as a feedback mechanism.

Did you know?

It is not a sign of our irresponsibility, on the contrary! Taking the life cycle and the behavior of contemporary packaging materials into account, we are actively involved in the established recycling process. Bioplastics' composition makes them non-recyclable, so they can’t be disposed of into yellow recycling bins and must be removed from plastic waste at materials reclamation facilities. Therefore, the whole recycling process becomes more complex, not to mention the costs of new manufacturing operations. We also try to provide our end consumers with information on proper recycling.
Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), from which beverage packagings are made, is a readily-recyclable plastic, and the resulting material remains in high demand. It is used in textile and furniture manufacturing and in the automotive industry. So, the sweatshirt you’re wearing, the sofa you’re sitting on, and the car seat you drove to work in this morning may all be made from recycled plastics.
So, what happens to a plastic Korunní bottle when it starts its journey in a yellow recycling bin? Plastic waste is collected together, with PET bottles being separated from polystyrene, foils and other plastic waste on the sorting line. Caps and labels are also removed (so it doesn’t matter whether you dispose of the bottle with or without the cap and the label). Bottles are then crushed into small particles of several millimeters in diameter which are repeatedly cleaned and dried. This crushed material is eventually sold and may be used in the manufacturing of artificial fibers found in winter coats, sleeping bags, car seats, carpets and sofas. It’s likely that the furniture and grass block pavers in your garden, your clothing pins and the noise barriers along the highways and railways also contain recycled plastics.
According to numerous studies, PET bottles are the least dangerous of all types of plastics as far as the release of microplastics is concerned.
